Workout Apps – Seven by Perigee

Seven App PerigeeIf you’re really limited with time constraints, Seven by Perigee is a great workout app to have. The app prescribes the 7 Minute Scientific Workout which, like Tabata, has become a quick hit with busy individuals who want a quick, effective workout that you can do just about anywhere. If you search for it, you will find loads of apps for the 7 Minute Scientific Workout. What I found interesting about Seven is that it is an app designed to keep you faithful to the workout. It’s like the Seven Minute Workout “gamefied”.

The Goal

Complete a daily workout of 7 minutes for the next 7 months.

How it Works

Doing the same workout repeatedly can get boring. The app cleverly encourages consistent participation by offering rewards for completing milestones:

  • Challenge accepted – starting your first workout
  • Hat-Trick – working out 3 days in a row
  • Intense Week – working out 7 days in a row
  • Is this a Challenge? – working out every day for 2 weeks
  • 1 Month Down – working out every day for a month
  • This Quarter is Looking Good – working out every day for 3 months
  • Creating a Habit – staying on the challenge for 3 months
  • So Close I Can Taste It – staying on the challenge for 6 months
  • 7 Month Champion – completing the 7 month challenge
  • There is No 7 Months Goal – going on for 12 months
  • Going Athlete – finishing two rounds of the 7 m

There are more rewards but I think you get the idea.

You also get three hearts or “lives”. If you miss a day, you can use a heart so you don’t have to start all over. Use up three hearts and you’re out. Miss less than three workouts in a month and you can get a heart back.

I was on the workout for three days when I sustained injury to my knees – unrelated to this app – so now we are out for the count. I plan to start again when my knees heal. Let’s see how far I get…
